Good Newwz, starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh, is expected to open at over Rs 20 crore at the box office this Friday.
It is a multi-starrer with Akshay, who is already on top and brings a great variety to his work, and Kareena, who is coming after a long time and has a fan following of her own. Kiara and Diljit are also very strong. The songs are hit among the audience and it is also a solo release. Everything looks positive and it should turn out to be a good news in itself.”
Good Newwz is also expected to gain around the New Year holiday. However, nationwide CAA protests that affected Dabangg 3’s collection will be a factor here too. Dabbang 3 was impacted by the protests and collected only Rs 100 crore in 5 days despite being a Salman starrer and part of an established franchise.
Good Newwz may not be able to beat Akshay’s highest opening film Mission Mangal , which opened on Independence Day with collections of Rs 29.16 crore. It was the actor’s second highest opener Gold (2018) which collected Rs 25.25 on day one, but can certainly beat his third highest opener — Kesari, which grossed Rs 21.06 crore on the opening day.
